My new XPS 8940 has a 256 GB SSD and a 2 TB 3.5" drive. I would like to add a 2nd 3.5" Hard Drive to the enclosure. The chassis currently has a couple of unused Hard Drive cages. One of them is 2.5" and appears to be riveted to the chassis. The other unused cage is slightly bigger and held in place with screws, but still looks to be too small to fit a 3.5" hard drive.
Is there any way to replace one of the smaller unused hard drive cages with a 3.5" cage?

Hi, the info is extemely useful. How do you supply the power for the third hard drive from the mother board? Or did you supply the power from outside the board? Thanks.
If you do not sufficient open (unsed) sata power connections, you can split one with this splitter cable.
Here are my specs:
Until now, I have done nothing except open the case of my XPS 8930 (not a 8940), bought in early 2020). It came with a 2TB HDD and a 512GB NVMe drive. I can't recall the PSU size, but was I was deterred from going further just by the lack of space for fitting another HDD.
Could I just replace the 2TB Seagate with 8TB or 10TB? - if there is room.
